Cattle & Livestock Immobilizer Applications:
The animal immobilizer or cattle restrainer applies itself to many procedures and operations from on farm duties to veterinary use. Drastically improve worker and animal safety by effectively immobilizing the beast prior to performing tasks.
Procedures include the following:
~~ Well proven design with thousands in operation around Australia and the world ~~
Cattle from cows, steers, calves to bulls as well as small livestock such as sheep, goats and pigs are immobilized through electric rectal probe stunning. Safe electrical currents are induced into the soft tissue of the animal causing a temporary and completely reversible paralysis of the muscle. Alternating between muscle contraction and relaxation at high frequencies allow for effective control of the beast while not inducing excessive muscle fatigue or damage. In terms of safety this cattle immobilizer provides benefits over large animal anesthesia or the alternative of having only crush or cradle restraint.
Adjust the immobilizer using the twist knob on the outside to easily dial in the required setting for each animal being restrained. Insertion is performed with the immobilizer switched off, then by increasing the current an optimum setting for that beast can be quickly found. If during the procedure the beast is too active simply stop and increase the setting.
Key Features of the Cattle & Small Livestock Immobilisers:
Optional 6V Battery Pack
Scintex offers an optional 6V battery pack which can be plugged into the charging port of the immobiliser. This is ideal for emergencies when the immobiliser charge has run out and there is no time to recharge. To order see the check box near Add To Cart.

Note: For very wild, large cattle in some instances only partial paralysis may be achieved, however, this will provide improved safety compared to not using an electric immobiliser.
